This is not a food to eat, but it is a really fun gift to present to preschool and young elementary age children. Better yet, have them make it themselves! My son and I made these one year to give as a gift to his pre-K classmates. The teachers kept and used them the following year as an activity for the children to make themselves. Fast forward seven years and my daughter is using this recipe for her pre-school crowd as a make-your-own holiday craft.

Sprinkle this dust throughout the yard on Christmas Eve day.
